If the groups approach elsewhere in the tree proves too unhandy, you
might want to investigate into the kernel patches that flexibilize the
traditional UNIX access control policy.  RSBAC is one I have tried
briefly.  It would do the job, though I have not gone into it deeply
enough to recommend or not to recommend it.

You could do something like ``chroot /home'', but as rootshells go,
escaping the jail would be trivial, AFAIK.
